Poet and presenter, Ntsiki Mazwai, took to social media to share her opinion about how Cassper and AKA need to re-evaluate the messages attached to their music should they have any ambition of reaching the levels of the late ProKid.
Ntsiki Mazwai is never shy to share her opinion about anything she knows needs addressing. And this last Sunday, AKA and Cassper Nyovest were the unlucky targets that found themselves on her radar and in her firing line.
Ntsiki took to Twitter to share her opinion of how AKA and Cassper introduced the nation to their thoughtless rap style, something she was really not impressed with.
She wrote: “Prokid's generation rapped about social issues... AKA and Casper rap about booze. #StandardDrop”
She further explained that the hip-hop genre moved from the "quality standard of ProKid and HHP to Cassper and AKA". She also said that when they were "pushing vernacular rap, AKA started bragging about being the best English rapper and then opened the way for South African Americans."
Ntsiki also added that she felt Cassper and AKA didn’t offer anything “substantial” in their music and they seldom rapped about real issues affecting people.
She added that we need rappers who rap about real life issues affecting people, to fulfil their spiritual calling and give people rhymes that people can vent to express emotions and ultimately become better souls.
She added that we also needed conscious rap, that mirrored society and made a conscious effort to leave the world better than it found it. Check out her tweets below:
Meanwhile, about two weeks ago, Briefly.co.za reported that South Africa's most outspoken poet, Ntsiki Mazwai, has expressed her opinion on removing Christian holidays from the South African calendar - she agrees. Ntsiki feels that they are being forced on non-Christians.
Ntsiki Mazwai is very opinionated, and she decided to join the call to have Christian holidays taken off the South African calendar. The poet and presenter said she's tired of being oppressed by the religion and it shouldn't be forced onto people who aren't Christian, according to TimesLIVE.
